August, 2003 continued

Q: What has been your best tournament win?
A: "Claycourts. It has been my best summer ever. I won (G16) Claycourts, States (Florida) and the Bush Florida Open. And I'm still in the Hards (Jennifer lost in the semis). I've never had a better summer."

Q: Why do you think that is? Why is this summer your break out time?
A: "I've been working harder. I've won state once before, but I've never won the Bush. And Claycourts! I'm playing up because I'm only 14."

Q: What tournament did you have the most fun at?

A: "I'd have to say Claycourts. I roomed with Laura Sabinski the first half of the tournament. When she got out of the tournament my doubles partner (Christina Liles) moved in. It was a really big room and we had fun."

Q: What tournament haven't you played yet that you're looking forward to?
A: "US Open Juniors. They might give me a wildcard, but I'm really not sure."

Q: Where are you going from here?
A: "If I don't get into the US Open I'm going to take awhile off for summer reading and math homework because I'm going into ninth grade and that's high school."
